Berkli Parc Cafe to Open December 1
Those teaser signs we spotted early last month were correct. A taste of the Bay Area is indeed coming to the southwestern corner of Allen and Delancey. Berkli Parc Cafe has been readying the former flooring supplies space for months, and over the weekend, the curtains of brown paper were lifted. Peering through the windows of 61 Delancey, we could see an interior defined by wood finishes, very much imbibing the rustic ski lodge vibe.
Out front, ladder jockeys were busy installing the new in-your-face white-lettered signage. We spoke briefly with the Cal-cap-wearing proprietor, a Bay Area transplant, who informed us that Berkli Parc is a low-key cafe that will serve up California-style cuisine. They are currently putting on the final touches, and barring any major disasters with inspection, plan to open December 1.
With this latest culinary addition, the puzzle is complete – all the four corners of the intersection are now restaurants or bars (Subway, Starbucks, White Slab Palace).
But before the facade was completely painted and re-finished, there was a fleeting moment last month to admire cool bilingual ghost signage. It was for the onetime carpet-slash-blinds outpost 3 Day Blinds.
